Join our class of ambitious and determined GMTs in a 10-month intensive, cross-functional, learning experience. You’ll travel to and work in different breweries and offices across the country getting to know top leaders along the way. Throughout this program, you’ll also work with our innovation team on a Build a Brand project to flex your creative and analytical muscles while learning what it really takes to launch a new brand.
Following the 10-month training program, GMT graduates are placed in specific functions across our company. In these entry-level management roles, graduates will have a direct impact on the business and influence key decisions.
While degrees in Business or Engineering can provide valuable skills to help candidates succeed in the GMT program, we believe in diversity of thought and encourage students from all disciplines to apply. Every year, GMTs with a variety of majors excel in the interview process and are accepted into the program.
We value curious and ambitious people who are open and willing to embrace opportunities in different locations across our company. We seek out candidates who have the grit, energy and passion to make a bold impact.
We believe actions speak louder than words and are looking for people that demonstrate alignment to our culture through their professional experiences. Our GMTs are team players with proven ability to take ownership of their projects and thrive in a fast-paced, informal environment.
Many of our most senior leaders started right where you are. Here’s the process we go through to pick the best GMT candidates.
The Global Management Trainee Program will give you an in-depth look across the entire organization to teach and prepare you before your first role. In these entry-level management roles you’ll have the opportunity to have a direct impact on the business and influence key decisions—there’s no hiding in the back of the room at Anheuser-Busch. From entry level to zone president, everyone has a seat at the table and is expected to bring their best every day. Your training is just the foundation; and your first role is where you’ll make a difference. Some examples of first roles for this program are: group manager, district sales manager, and brand associate, among others.

The name Global Management Trainee Program sure sounds like it includes global placement doesn’t it? Well, we actually refer to it as “Global” because you are part of one cohort of talent and you’ll get to network with talent from around the globe. Each of our seven geographical zones provides the same learning and development experience and runs the exact same programs.
We want you to learn the beer business in your home country so you can get a strong foundation before you go out and conquer the world. Global relocation moves becomes available when once you’ve proven yourself and your ability to drive results with a team of your own. Results: Not just another buzzword here.
We look for people who are open to anything. Any job, any location, any challenge. After we train you for the duration of this program (10 months), we’ll work to find the best fit for you and for our business within our company.
We want top talent in every function and that means we want our GMTs everywhere. Because even though the majority of GMTs will be placed into one of our biggest functions (Supply, Sales or Marketing) there are also opportunities across other functions. To be a GMT, you need to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. If the first thing you think when you are presented with the unknown is “yeah, I could do that,” then this is the program for you.
Yes you can, and we encourage it. We’re a company of owners who got to where we are because we’re not afraid to try, fail (learn from our mistakes), and then try again and succeed. Because we didn’t become #1 by sitting on the sidelines and playing it safe. We’ve all failed plenty of times, but our setbacks have never stopped us, and they shouldn’t stop you either.
